Sacha Baron Cohen swears he’s the reason Kid Rock no longer screams “MAH WIFE” every time Pamela Anderson walks in the door. Don’t worry. Nobody bonked you on the head, kidnapped you with their time machine, and took you back to the year 2006. Or maybe they did, I don’t know your life! But from where I’m standing, the year is still 2019. According to The Daily Beast, Sacha recently reconfirmed what he’s been saying since shortly after Pam and Kid Rock’s 4-month marriage ended in divorce; that Borat was to blame.
It’s not like Dick Cheney was known for being barrel of laughs, but in the eyes of Sacha Baron Cohen, Dick is apparently the Don Rickles of the Executive Branch. When Sarah Palin came out saying she had been duped into giving an interview to some SBC character for a fake documentary, most of us gleefully squealed over what Wasilla’s Wonder Woman was going to do to make her look even more dumb. Who Is America? premiered, and each episode went by with no Sarah. Her interview was never used, and she was only mentioned in a credit of the last episode as “Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent).” Sacha says that’s because she’s not funny.
It’s awards season in Tinseltown, which means Fox News writers are giddily pre-writing all their stories on how left wing California actors are taking a giant poop on their moral ways. Enter: Sacha Baron Cohen. The prankster really got under Trump supporter skin this year for Who Is America? The mockumentary somehow managed to bamboozle Dick Cheney into signing a waterboarding kit, got Roy Moore to stand in front of a pedophile meter, and got free press from Sarah Palin (no, that’s not her next to him in the pic above) without her making the cut. Naturally, the Hollywood Foreign Press awarded that with a Golden Globe nomination, and Sacha wants to thank Sarah by taking her as his date.
It appears there are two possible ways to react if you’re a famous American politician and have recently found yourself humiliated at the hands of Sacha Baron Cohen on his Showtime series Who Is America?. If you’re Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer, you might pull up your pants and resign in an attempt to save what little shred of dignity you might have left. If you’re Sarah Palin, you would throw an internet tantrum and claim you were duped. Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama (and creep) Roy Moore looked like a fool on Who Is America? in a segment involving a fake pedophile detector, and now he’s suing.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime series Who Is America? is a great show if you enjoy cringing over clueless bigots enthusiastically making an ass of themselves (sometimes literally). One of the biggest draws was the promise of an appearance by Sarah Palin. Sadly, we might not get to watch such entertaining programming.
At the rate he’s going with tricking politicians, I wouldn’t be surprised if the finale of Who Is America? includes Sacha Baron Cohen somehow getting Donald Trump to sign the deed to America back over to THE QUEEN. Like they would be so bad.
It didn’t seem like it took all that much for Sacha (disguised as an expert in anti-terrorism maneuvers) to get Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer to act like a dipshit and yell racial slurs, show the world he thought Asia was one giant country, and drop his panties. That didn’t exactly sit well with the GOP on the homestead, and Jason has resigned from his position. Continue reading
